Although the first several days of my southern California vacation were windy, cloudy, and a bit chilly, the sun finally came out, both in San Diego and in Redondo Beach and a good time was had by all. One of my daughter’s and my daily activities was taking a long walk, either by the beach or through neighborhoods with beautiful homes (and doors)…or both. We couldn’t see much of this house but they did have a lovely gate and some great planters and when there’s a four-lane road on the other side of the sidewalk, you want as much privacy as possible. Of course the other side, high above the beach and beach path, has a fantastic ocean view.

(Addendum: Due to traveling last Thursday, I forgot about the writing component of this week’s doors. Feel free to use any of these three doors as a writing prompt if you are so moved.)

If you have the money to have a home right at the edge of the hill overlooking the beach, you can also to afford enough vehicles to fill three garage spaces or perhaps you use one space for storage. But you definitely want your garage doors to match your gate.

Whatever vehicles went in those garage spots, this probably wasn’t one of them. I don’t think many people have a garage long enough for this classic beauty and certainly not with anything stored in front of it. We spotted this at the farmer’s market and it was in pristine condition.

Last summer my husband and I biked in and around Indiana Dunes State Park.  We also drove along roads by Lake Michigan where there were rows of beach houses.  As you’ll be able to see from these doors, these aren’t little, casual summer homes!  These beauties live in Long Beach, Michigan.

The venue for our daughter’s wedding is Las Gaviotas in Baja California, Mexico. It’s a beautiful community built up the lower side of a hill. The houses are close, but every house has a view of the ocean and many of them have wonderful doors. Here are just a few from one of my morning walks.
